What are menstrual cramps and how can you overcome them safely?

Menstrual cramps are considered a natural part of the menstrual cycle of many women. Nowadays, there are many possibilities to alleviate the pain. Although everyone knows that cramps are not dangerous and that they will eventually resolve, knowing that they will return next month bothers many women. This concern has grown in recent decades. While in the past women were expected to be housewives, now, when so many women have their own careers and actively participate in the job market, they need to be more available every day of the month regardless of their periods and painful cramps.

Menstrual cramps serve as evidence that the woman’s reproductive system works properly. They are caused by the muscles of your uterus contracting against the cervix and the internal uterine lining that the uterus expels. The thicker the lining of the uterus, the stronger the pain.

How can this pain be overcome? Every woman needs to learn about herself and find out what helps alleviate her pain. For some women physical activity can make it worse, and for some engaging in strenuous physical activity can alleviate it. Exercise increases blood flow to the uterus and actually causes the secretion of endorphins known as the body’s natural painkillers.

You can also use a hot water bottle or heating pad to warm the lower part of your stomach. Many women report momentary relief after applying heat.

Many Yoga instructors believe that there are many exercises in this Hindu practice, which can relieve the pain, while Yoga combines physical exercise with meditation.
